Thank you so much to everyone who came out to see "Lovers and the Like, a virtual staged reading" this weekend. I was blown away by all the generous gifts and insightful feedback and am looking forward to bringing more readings to life. In September I'm teaming up with a great team to work-shop "Cafe Mocha Murders", a quirky comedy that's all about the latte art, caffeine content, and imminent threat of death. Stay tuned for more info.
